2018 field day finds GARS at the same site as last year(Harbins Park). It is at the east end of the county. This site is out of the way but heavily used by trail walkers and bikers. There are NO ball fields at this park.
We will have a nice size pavilion and an open field plus a lot of trees. There will be signs at the last intersection and the entrance to the park.

Our objective (from the ARRL) will be to work as many stations as possible on any and all amateur bands (excluding the 60, 30, 17, and 12-meter bands) and to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions. Field Day is open to all amateurs in the areas covered by the ARRL/RAC Field Organizations and countries within IARU Region 2. DX stations residing in other regions may be contacted for credit, but are not eligible to submit entries.
We will have 8 stations running. If 10m shuts down, then the station will operate 75 ssb. There will be a GOTA station as well as 6 meter and Satellite station. Field Day software is from www.n3fjp.com
